No, you just put the transmission in neutral. This works for both a dolly and for flat towing.

How do you tow dolly a 1966 mustang?

The best way would be to remove the drive shaft from the vehicle before towing. Many transmissions do not circulate the transmission oil or fluid unless the engine is running. Removing the drive shaft will keep the rear output on the transmission from turning while towing it.

Can you flat tow 1990 corolla automatic transmission?

NO. You must put the front (drive) wheels on a tow dolly or trailer it. Toyota also states that you shouldn't tow it more than 50 miles or 30 MPH... but I think that's more for safety than because of damage to the car. It is recommended that the vehicle be towed by a flatbed towing vehicle or a tow dolly whenever possible. Automatic transmission fluid level must be in the hot temperature range on the dip stick. Vehicle should not be towed from the rear without using a towing dolly for the front wheels. If in an emergency situation towing with the front wheels on the ground is required, the key should be in the "ACC" position. Vehicle should have the park brake released and the transmission placed in the Neutral position. All-trac models should be towed with all four wheels off the ground. Vehicle should not be towed over 30 mph or more than 50 miles. Remember, towing on a tow dolly means the rear of the car is closer to the ground. Go slow on dips and bumps to prevent bottoming out the rear (and crushing a tailpipe).

Which cars can be towed behind a motorhome?

Any car with a standard transmission as long as it is in neutral. Automatic transmissions will overheat and burn up if the engine is not running. Front wheel drive cars can be towed using a tow dolly that puts the front wheels in a two wheel trailer called a tow dolly and the car rides on the dolly and the back wheels.
